Emerging Technology Showcase 2021


If you have ever attended the International Lidar Mapping Forum(ILMF) conference in person, you may be familiar with the highly popular “Product Preview” sessions held at each conference. These sessions give a rapid-fire introduction to new technology, updated software solutions, and demonstrate the latest technology for your work.

These “Emerging Technology Showcases” feature companies demonstrating their products or launching their new tech in short videos. This session, which took place on April 22, 2021 featured presentations from five companies:



PhaseOne researches, develops, and manufactures medium and large format digital photography systems, software and imaging solutions for industrial markets.
